Synology: Which NAS Models Support The Btrfs File System?

Synology Which NAS Models Support The Btrfs File System

Btrfs is a computer storage format that combines a file system based on the copy-on-write principle with a logical volume manager. It was initially designed at Oracle Corporation in 2007 for use in Linux, and since November 2013, the file system’s on-disk format has been declared stable in the Linux kernel. Btrfs is intended to address the lack of pooling, snapshots, checksums, and integral multi-device spanning in Linux file systems. When dealing with large-scale data storage, businesses require a solution that prevents data corruption, while providing flexible backup tools. The next-generation Btrfs file system brings these tools to Synology NAS servers, allowing businesses, organizations and home users to reduce maintenance overhead and efficiently store their data.


Below you have a list of Synology NAS models that support the Btrfs file system.
